Wealth, Poverty and Politics
This article explores the influence of politics and institutions on poverty and inequality. It first considers the general contention that poverty is shaped by the combination of power resources and institutions. On the other hand, institutionalists have highlighted the role of formal rules and regulations. The article goes on to discuss the theoretical arguments of power resources theory and the evidence for key power resources that is, collective political actors like labor unions and parties. It also reviews institutional explanations, focusing on the key concepts and theories and as well as the evidence linking the most salient institutions to poverty.
What are some of the geographical factors throughout history that lead to unequal outcomes? How does all of this relate to the ongoing income inequality debate in America? Sowell mentions J. Aaron Powell: Joining us today is Dr. Thomas Sowell.
How Politics and Institutions Shape Poverty and Inequality
Is wealth inequality the crisis that some people believe? This study examines six aspects of wealth inequality and discusses the evidence for the claims being made. Indeed, wealth inequality has changed surprisingly little given the large economic changes in recent decades from technology and globalization. Furthermore, most estimates overstate wealth inequality because they do not include the effects of social programs. The share of the wealthy who inherited their fortunes has sharply declined in recent decades. Cronyism is one cause of wealth inequality, and it has likely increased over time as the government has grown. Government programs for retirement, healthcare, and other benefits have reduced the incentives and the ability of nonwealthy households to accumulate savings and thus have increased wealth inequality.

Sowell taught economics at Cornell, UCLA, and other academic institutions, as well as authored numerous publications. This book explores the causes of poverty, wealth disparities, and success across societies and between people groups. Sowell argues that the contemporary liberal narrative of victimization and exploitation fails to explain the empirical data, and it inflames resentment while keeping lagging groups from developing towards success. Sowell marshals a host of evidence to support his position, and he tries to move beyond rhetoric to fact-based understanding and solutions. There have been numerous and significant disparities between people groups throughout human history.
Фонтейн не мог понять, в чем дело, но, какими бы ни были причины ее состояния, выяснять это сейчас не было времени. - Нужно решать, сэр! - требовал Джабба. - Немедленно. Фонтейн поднял голову и произнес с ледяным спокойствием: - Вот мое решение.
Сьюзан с облегчением вздохнула: - Туда, где твое подлинное призвание. Дэвид улыбнулся: - Да.
Хейл крепче обхватил Сьюзан и шепнул ей на ухо: - Стратмор столкнул его вниз, клянусь. - Она не клюнет на твою тактику разделяй и властвуй, - сказал Стратмор, подходя еще ближе. - Отпусти .
Кнопочная панель Третьего узла погасла, двери были закрыты. - Черт возьми.
Подожди! - крикнул. - Подожди. Меган с силой толкнула стенку секции, но та не поддавалась.
Третий узел был пуст, свет шел от работающих мониторов. Их синеватое свечение придавало находящимся предметам какую-то призрачную расплывчатость. Она повернулась к Стратмору, оставшемуся за дверью. В этом освещении его лицо казалось мертвенно-бледным, безжизненным.
